IMYRMIND - Tong Po EP

IMYRMIND debuts on Tartelet with a four-tracker ranging from banging MPC techno to contagious Latin house and laidback jazzy wonk.

After finishing a degree in architecture and relocating to Berlin earlier this year, IMYRMIND stepped up his game with the release of his solo debut on Astro & Graef’s Money $ex imprint. This November will see the release of the beat-smiths second solo venture on Tartelet Records.

The opening track ‘Tong Po’ is IMYRMIND’s take on techno, inspired by the villain from Jean Claude Van Damme’s 1989 cult classic Kickboxer. A heavy pitched kick drum, fuzzy melodies with generous use of tape delay and a badass bass line dropping around the three-minute mark makes this a peak time candidate.

‘Wanja 9000’ slows down the pace. Dusty Jazz samples and wonky beats with sloppy turntable cuts add a nice live feel to the track.

On the b-side ‘Upturn’ sets the mood with classic salsa percussion infused with an epic brass and piano hook that could very well stem from the infamous Palmieri brothers or one of their contemporaries. Embrace your inner Latino and follow your hips.

The last track of the record ‘Number Seven’ completes the circle with venturous drum programming, layered melodies and plenty of “early morning ambiance”.

IMYRMIND is scheduled for a three-week Australia, NZ and Asia tour in November alongside long-time collaborator Glenn Astro.
